GWR Travelling Post Office

We are very excited after many years of testing and experimentation that the GWR Saint we will be releasing through Steam will be coming with a fully working Travelling Post Office exchange system.

Pictures of the coach and apparatus are available on our previous blog posts

But nothing shows it off quite as well as a video... enjoy!


(Important: Dovetail Games are also publishing a GWR Star very soon and we've had a lot of people confusing the Star with our Saint and asking us about it. The Star is NOT by us and will not come with the working TPO, Victory Works advanced features, all named class members, etc.)

Next time we'll be posting the full feature list of the GWR Saint & TPO add-on and shortly after that we'll reveal the contents of the BR reskin marketplace add-on which should follow soon afterwards.

  4. A lovely job - your attention to detail is exemplary - the final bounce of the received mailbags on the collector being a specially nice touch.

    1. Thank you. The bounce on the coach net is actually more pronounced the faster you make the collection.
      We had a guy who works on all of the TPO's in preservation advising us on the whole process which really helped us nail all of the little nuances of the exchange.

    1. We would hardly be doing our job properly if we didn't know about the Lady of Legend build.
      We visited Didcot while we were building our model and were taken into the works to see the latest state of her - she's looking superb.

  6. You guys are really doing a great job! It is by far the best DLC available through Steam an many of the others (DTG inclueded!) could learn a lot from you! BTW, will the whistle be quillable , as on the S160?

  8. This is amazing! All I'm confused about it how you work the apparatus programming, like what's placed on the line to activate each stage?

    1. How to place the apparatus in your own scenarios is covered in detail on pages 37-46 of the manual

    2. But where is this manual? I didn't get one when I bought the pack.

    3. You did, but DTG hide them all away in a not very easy to find place!
      You can get to the manuals folder by clicking the "Settings" button in the top right of the main screen of TS, then "Tools", and "View Manuals"
